The Community Action and Leadership Collaborative (CLAC) is a unique collaboration between AIDS and Rights Alliance for Southern Africa (ARASA), the Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+), Global Action for Trans* Equality (GATE), the MSMGF, the Global Network for Sex Work Projects (NSWP), the International Network of People Who Use Drugs (INPUD), and the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC). Working closely together, we are able to link our deep understanding and connection with key populations to strong expertise in the areas of HIV and tuberculosis treatment access, human rights and community engaged programming.
CLAC is dedicated to strengthened, meaningfully engaged, well-informed, and equitably resourced communities of people living with HIV, men who have sex with men, injection drug users, sex workers and transgender people working in partnership to advance the health and rights of all people.
CLAC has collaborated with the LINKAGES program to maintain a resource library for key populations policy and practice, to serve as a “go to” place online for accessing the best information and resources on HIV prevention, care and treatment for sex workers, MSM, people who use inject drugs, and transgender persons. The library contains a curated set of tools and materials to serve a range of audiences working to address the needs of key populations, including policymakers, advocates, program planners and implementers, health care workers, and peer educators.
